star - we will either donate ours to embryonic stem cell research or discard. We do not want more kids and have 7 frosties. We did consider donating them but ultimately did not feel comfortable with the idea. If our fertility journey hadn't spanned the last 5 years we probably would have gone for #3 but now I am too old and too tired and my body hates being pregnant. I got my tubes removed/tied during the section and I am at peace with that decision as well. Truthfully I have not regretted it for a moment. Sometimes I think I will miss that excitement of the days leading up to the new baby, etc but our family size really feels right now.

Juliet, you are in the home stretch. I found that after 30 weeks time sped up a lot. And you will have the baby in much better weather which I'm very jealous about!

Thank you 3c, at the moment I canít bear the thought of doing anything but using them but I donít really want to go through 4 more fets lol, who knows though, Iím not saying I do or donít want anymore children, right now I couldnít be happier but I will probably store them in case I do want to try again in the future

star, how have the nights been since the weekend? i hope you are getting some sleep! how is DD with him? how long did you stay in hospital?
my little one has loved seeing friends babies so i am hoping it is a good sign. but i bet there will be some issues when we have him and she realizes she is not the baby anymore.
oh and i have 13 frosties. a year ago we paid for a 2 year storage. hubby feels we are done. i haven't been sure....but we will have another year to decide.


how are all the other new mommas doing?

afm, so i am all over the place emotionally...sometimes i am like wow only 9 weeks to go! but most the time i am like, CRAP I STILL HAVE nine weeks??? pregnancy is getting hard...
i am starting to do that pregnant walk a bit where your belly is sticking out and your back position is sorta changed. sleep is crap. oh and i have random shooting pains to my crotch. i have round ligament every day but this is something different. and sometimes like he is kicking my cervix area? i don't know what is really going on down there but it can be uncomfortable and painful but always short lived. really looking forward to my appointments but they are all still a ways away!

Juliet, the pains you described was exactly how I felt the last few weeks, as I was 2cm dilated when I went in something was obviously doing what it should lol

The nights are iffy, mon night wasn’t bad but last night by 4:30am I had only had 2hrs sleep and then another 2-3 after that which wasn’t so bad but up til 4:30 was pretty tiring

Dd is really good, she’s interested in him and obviously loves him but not overboard with it like I thought she would be, she will ask to hold him but after literally ten seconds says ‘mummys go! And wants to pass him back, I think it’s because she doesn’t like to sit still lol

I had him at 9:38 thurs night and was home by 1pm the next say, they checked his blood sugars 3 times and all were ok so we were ok to go home

Day 5 yesterday and he’s lost 14oz, 9.6% so they want him weighed again tomorrow so midwife is coming round at some point, hopefully he has started to put it back on, I don’t see how not the way he feeds!

12 hour feeding! Oh my Star. Do you feel like a zombie. Is DH off to help you? I cant imagine taking care of baby and toddler.

Juliet time will start flying by. Try to rest when you can! My pelvic and RLP came and went so hopefully you get some relief too.

Afm i dont know if im going to do induction as planned on friday (39 weeks exaxtly) I have another us and NST test today and will chat with Dr. The more people i talk to seems like my c-section chance is much higher and my family is telling me to give another week to let her come on her own. Honestly dont know what to do hopefully dr can help with decision today.

Congratulations star! Love the name you picked. Sorry about the long feedings & sleepless nights, I hope he finds a good schedule soon!

Dogmommy- good luck today! I hope you decide what works for you. Whatever happens, you'll do great!

Juliet- I felt just like that my last 2 months. It's kind of good though because by the time you get to the end you're so ready to just be done that labor isn't as bad lol.

How are the other new mamas? Happy Valentine's Day to all! We had a little issue with our pediatrician trying to get us to let Finn cry it out instead of feeding him (he gained 1lb in 8 days) & it was a disaster. We were miserable & Finn was miserable, and DH and I couldn't deal with hearing him cry like that when all he wanted was food. So we're ignoring his advice! Finn is healthy & strong and I'm not worried about his weight. He's such a chill baby otherwise & goes 4-5 hours at night on his own. Why mess with that?

Thank you! I agree scooby, he’s a newborn baby and cries when he needs something, even if it’s just a cuddle, I could never do cry it out, they’re only little for such a short time every cuddle is precious and it’s a time to make the most of

Dogmommy, some days I’m a zombie and others I manage to deal with it and get on with my day, luckily the 12hr feed was a one off, dd done the same on her first proper day, difference was she started it at 11am so was done by 11pm whereas calves didn’t start til 5pm lol

How did your appointment go today dogmommy?

star, sounds like things are going well! DD sounds cute with him! hope the nights get a bit more routine but it will come together soon! they're only so little once!

scooby, you know what is best for DS! 4-5 hours at night sounds so lovely!

you mommas are doing great! love hearing your situations as it is getting me prepared for what is to come!

star, dog, scooby, thanks for the support!
i had a super painful RLP during the night! DD was crying for me, and i was trying to slide out of bed carefully but main it was painful and i couldn't move for a few long seconds.
yeah these last 2 months are rough but hopefully it is my body preparing for things! and baby getting what he needs before he comes.
i'm really thinking a c-sec around april 14th. i am just so excited to get him into the world and take care of him!
and to be honest, i am ready for the weight to come back off and get into some healthier routines and eventually get back to where i need to be but it wont be easy and i know it will take awhile but that is okay.
12 days to next appt....

how is everyone else doing?? only a couple of us left to have our babies i think??!!

Juliet, it’s sounds like that’s the best decision for you, I was so glad for Caleb to finally arrive as I was getting to the point of worrying too much that he was ok, moving enough etc so was relieved to actually have him here!

Hi all! Popping in as I pump at 1:30am! Just finished another feeding cycle for the boys - they are eating about every 3 hrs still at night. We are on just formula at night but I pump for the next day for Malcolm and the Timothy gets the breast all day. Seems to be working so far!
Everything here is wonderful! Weíve been very lucky (knock on wood) to avoid illness so far. This flu season is so scary! DH has either been off of work or has worked from home so thankfully itís been easy to handle 2 babies. I do not know what Iíd do if he had to go into the office full time!!
Iíve been able to lose all my pregnancy weight. Actually I lost it in 3 weeks. Still have a pooch of course but Iím so happy to be so mobile. But my legs and butt feel so doughy!! No muscle tone at all! Which is weird since I was just carrying around and extra almost 60lbs.
Ok T is about to explode in his crib. CONGRATULATIONS Star!!!
You got these last feweeejs, Juliet!! Itíll fly!!
Dog - good luck!!!
